To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 28 February 2008, Official Report, columns 1921-22W, on departmental manpower, how many of the employees under 18 years of age are receiving at least one day’s training per week. (204934)

The Ministry of Justice encourages learning and development opportunities for all staff regardless of age. In line with the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 there is no specific age-related training for staff under the age of 18. All staff receive training to support them in undertaking their day to day duties as well as having access to classroom based courses and alternative learning and development solutions as required.
